I attended Oberlin College as a undergraduate, majoring in music theory and history. I completed a Masters Degree in Expressive Arts Therapy/Music Therapy and Counseling Psychology at Lesley University in Cambridge Massachusetts. I received both Masters and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology from the Wright Institute in Berkeley, California.
I trained locally, completing pre-doctoral internships at California Pacific Medical Center, Department of Psychiatry and the college counseling center at California College of the Arts. I completed my post-doctoral training in the Department of Psychiatry at Children's Hospital and Research Center Oakland. I have served as a psychologist staff member at the Ann Martin Center in the East Bay, and work for Kaiser Permanente in the Hospital Consult Liaison Service.
I have been a Board Certified Music Therapist since 2003, and a Licensed Clinical Psychologist since 2013.
